Here's a brief summary as I know it:

1) Koji still isn't ready.  Dennis has said that he's targeting for
it to be ready by FUDCon

2) ia64 was built using their own koji instance (I think).  I don't
know what happened to it for F10.  There were kernel patches for it
during F10 development, so maybe they are just a bit behind at the

3) Sparc is still chugging along, but is not complete.

4) I have gotten inquiries about other secondary architectures, such
as soft-float PPC.

Maybe it's time we start a SIG.  We have Sparc, ia64, ARM, and one
or two potential others.  The biggest hurdle is koji at the moment
and hopefully that will be solved soon.  Then we can figure out where
to go from there.

NOTE: The above information is just what I have pieced together over
the past few weeks.  It may or may not be entirely accurate.  If
people know for certain, feel free to comment.
